Visiting this cheery, laid-back ice cream shop will give you a great look at Miami's famed "Little Havana" neighborhood while allowing you to indulge in delicious, homemade ice cream! This small but inviting family-owned ice cream shop is quite an eclectic experience. There is always a steady stream of customers walking in from all walks of life and it's nice to watch the families with excited kids and happy customers in general enjoying the delightful flavors!

It is located in the bustling part of Little Havana. There is a chalkboard-painted wall full of hilariously named flavors. However, because they change up their selections daily, their displayed selection is relatively small (about 14? flavors per day). Not to worry, though, as there is something for every ice cream aficionado.

If you look carefully, you will see that the comfy cushions on the bench area inside are actually covered in guayaberas (a traditional shirt worn by many latin men in Miami) that are protected, covered in plastic.

Stop in, choose an ice-cream, then stroll the lively main street of Little Havana and it's distinct latin flavor. The shop is across the street from the famous Domino Park where you can watch tables full of elderly men enjoying a lively game of Dominos with raucous discussions in Spanish and lots of hearty laughter. If you stroll down, there is a cigar shop next door and then an interesting combination bar/antique store/restaurant to stop in to take a peek. The pillars outside have etchings of some famous Cuban figures such as Celia Cruz, Pit Bull and others.

We take all first-time Miami visitors to this place to get a feel for the energy that shapes Miami.

Very creative flavors of local fruits and authentic Cuban culture. The service was just delightful. A must to complete a visit to Little Havana Miami Calle Ocho.

I saw Azucar on a shore excursion while I was visiting Miami and said when I come back I am going to stop by. While watching the Travel channel they did a segment on Azucar and I went back to Miami and did another shore excursion and ran into the ice cream shop. Truly good ice cream! I really liked the fact that they will let you sample as many favors as you like. I was in Miami for a total of 3 days (2 days before my cruise and 1 day after) and I went to Azucar all 3 days!

Each they had different flavors and I love the coconut, key lime and violet. The neighborhood where it's located Little Havana and it feels like you are in a different country. The employees were very friendly and even though the place was packed, they didn't try to rush you along to help other customers. I tell everyone when you go to Miami, you have to stop by Azucar and get some ice cream.

All the ice creams here are made here and they are terrific.

We enjoyed: coconut, rum raisin, caramel salt and chocolate. So there is a creative variety and the 'regular' flavors. Each of these were really good. The coconut a small pieces of coconut and was not overly sweet. The rum raisin was to die for. A perfect combination of the two ingredients. This is one of my favorite flavors and have had it in many places, but I would come back here and the rum raisin is what I have since it is the absolute best! The caramel salt was unique and just the right blend of each, so it wasn't salty yet you could taste it as you enjoyed the caramel. And of course chocolate - really good.

If you are walking Little Havana be sure to make a stop here.

Small, family-owned with home made ice cream with a beautiful tile floor from Cuba. Tropical flavors are among the unique ice cream choices. Try their chocolate-cherry. Yumm!
